Attested since the time of Mikael Agricola (16th century).

Usage notesEdit

That one has permission can always be expressed with the active first infinitive ("base form") of the verb, like olla in the first example above. Sometimes, especially if there are no other specifiers in addition to the verb, the illative of the active fourth infinitive is also accepted, like ampumiseen in the second example.

NounEdit

lupa (genitive [please provide], partitive [please provide])

  1. permission

LatinEdit

EtymologyEdit

The feminine version of lupus. The sense “prostitute” is either a comparison of the prostitutes' predation on men to the wolf's rapacity,[1] as also in Isidore's (often fanciful) opinion,[2] or a reference to the she-wolf's uncleanliness and promiscuity (often culturally conflated), parallelled in English bitch.[3]

PronunciationEdit

NounEdit

lupa f (genitive lupae); first declension

  1. she-wolf
  2. (slang) prostitute

DeclensionEdit

First-declension noun (dative/ablative plural in -īs or -ābus).

Case Singular Plural
Nominative lupa lupae
Genitive lupae lupārum
Dative lupae lupīs
